we stayed one night during the fire of 2010. the lodge was contracted to feed the firefighters and even though we arrived at dinner time they were still very super friendly and accomodating and let us have a hamburger and beans. rooms were clean, tv had 3 glitchy channels but that shouldn't matter to anyone, grab a couple beers in the store and enjoy the night. its always nice when you ask "what time is checkout" and they reply, "what time do you plan on leaving?" be sure to head up into the mountains to camp before or after your stay, its beautiful up there.
